Antoni Gaudi

Antoni Plàcid Guillem Gaudí i Cornet (25 June 1852–10 June 1926) – in English sometimes referred to by the Spanish translation of his name, Antonio Gaudí – was a Spanish Catalan architect who belonged to the Modernist style (Art Nouveau) movement and was famous for his unique and highly individualistic designs.
Known for his understanding of structure and decoration using color, light, and sculpture, Antonio Gaudi 's work has been the subject of extensive investigation and analysis.

Gaudi's Major Work :
Casa Vicens, 1878 - 1880
Palau G�ell, 1885 - 1889
Collegi de Santa Maria de Jes�s 1889 - 1894
Santa Coloma de Cervell�, 1898 - 1915
Casa Calvet, 1899 - 1904
Casa Batllo, Barcelona, Spain, 1905 - 1907

i like him His works combine mathematical genius, creativity, religion and humanism. Even french architect, Le Corbusie said :
“What I saw in Barcelona – Gaudí – was the work of such strength, such faith, of an extraordinary technical capacity, manifested during a whole life of genius; of a man who carved the stones before his eyes in well thought out pattern. Gaudí is the ‘builder’ of the turn of the century, a man adept with stone, iron and brick. His glory is seen today in his country. Gaudí was a great artist; only those who move the sensitive hearts of gentle people remain. But they are mistreated in the course of their lives, misunderstood or accused of sin toward the mode of the day. Architecture’s significance is shown when there dominates evidence of lofty intentions that triumph over all the problems in the line of fire (structure, economy, technique, utility). Thanks to interior preparation, architecture is the fruit of character – just that, a manifestation of character.”

Nice share
